This is my friend Eloise and her Dad.
Eloise is the writer/producer of the award winning musical web series, “HOME FOR MOM”. It is a project that artfully tackles the difficult subject of Dementia and other end of life issues.
This #GivingTuesday we are asking for your help to raise $2,500 so that #HomeForMom can film the last 6 episodes of the series. If you want to catch up on the show so far, visit www.homeformom.online .
A donation to this project may not be stocking stuffer material, but it is guaranteed to fill your soul with joy and love to last beyond the holiday season!
A word from Eloise:
The award winning digital musical series “Home for Mom” has received multiple awards for excellence and has been recognized for its ground breaking approach to the challenging topic of end of life issues. The enthusiastic feedback at festivals regarding the high quality of film making, gifted performers and engaging score was satisfying. The creative team never expected we would also be recognized for creating and casting non- stereotypical roles for people of color. Sweet!
Over the last few months it has become so very clear to us just how many people are dealing with family members facing end of life challenges (Dementia, ALS, Cancer etc.) with no “edutainment” to help them know they aren't alone. Time and time again we were thanked and told that, although documentaries are informational, “Home for Mom” was here for them in a way unlike any other online source. As one audience member said, “It’s comfort food for the soul at a difficult time.” Due to these positive responses, Mom's creative team are moving forward to film the last 6 episodes of the season. In the first 6 episodes we learned our characters stories. In episodes 7-12 we see them fight to find solutions and frankly debate end of life matters.
Information on how to access “Home for Mom” is currently posted on Grief, Dementia and ALS support sites. In addition, we have distributed flyers to individual residential care facilities. Our intention, once the final season is completed, is to team up with organizations that support families going though end of life challenges and schedule screenings and talkbacks to support this important community.
I am grateful to people like Deborah, who see the bigger picture. I am proud she sees the need for this material to be accessed by a larger population experiencing these challenges.
And I am grateful to their donors, individuals who know this work will make a difference. Please donate if you are looking for a unique and creative way to make an out-sized impact on families today and in the future.
BTW Deborah is dazzling in this. How someone this sweet and lovely can be so sinister- talk about range!
